  • We agreed before naming that we both had to like the names before we went with them so my DH picked our oldests first name and I picked the middle..with our 2nd child I picked the first name and DH picked the middle..with our 3rd child it was a little harder I picked her first name and then suggested a middle name and DH agreed their names are:

    Jared Michael
    Devon Matthew
    Jordan Elizabeth

  • Dh wanted a specific first name for dd so I got to pick the middle name. He said if we ever had a boy I could pick the complete name myself.

  • I had the first name picked out when I was in 8th grade LOL! I let him choose two middle names or one. He agreed to the whole name though. If he hadn't we would have came up with something else.

  • I picked out my daughters name and daddy agreed! LOL
    If she would have been a boy, we would have been screwed. He hated my boy names, and I hated his. Guess it worked out well for us!

  • My SO and i had a girls name picked out for at least a year before ever got pregnant. We were just talking about baby names one day, just for fun, and we both really loved it. So when we found out we were having a girl, we already had her first name picked out.
    My SO didn't really care about the middle name, he said i could pick whatever i wanted.
    And we are going to try for baby #2 in a few years, and we already have the names picked out for that one too! :)
